When setting out to accomplish a task Mary Poppins said “Well begun is half done.”
Many times starting is the most difficult part of accomplishing something.

What are you putting off in this moment? What is causing you fear? Why haven’t you made that first step?

Begin with writing down your WHY. Why do you want to accomplish this? Why is this important to you? Stating your WHY is powerful.

Next, take one small step forward. You can do it. Only you can make your life happen.

You can begin your journey in this very moment. Take that step. Once you do you’re halfway there.
